Wear Silk Not For Fashion But For Healing

Here’s a fact you may not be aware of: silk has been the luxury material of choice for humanity for approximately 7000 years. Now, that’s quite a surprising amount of time, but it certainly appears to be true as that number is derived from archaeological findings in China where ivory basins were discovered incised with silk worm designs, dated to around 4900BCE. Sure, we’re not entirely certain silk was considered luxurious all the way back then, but it’s difficult to imagine that it wouldn’t have been something a bit special as it is today.

Silk is also alluded to in literary works as old as Homer’s The Odyssey, where a shirt worn by the disguised Odysseus is described as ‘gleaming like the skin of a dried onion’, which is widely believed by scholars to be a description of silk cloth. In modern times, silk is used to create a multitude of luxury items from bed sheets to underwear, as well as a variety of other fashion uses such as blouses, scarves and pyjamas. However, silk is no longer all about the shiny, smooth feeling it creates when touching our skin because scientists have discovered numerous health benefits of silk, which should make the acquisition of some silk knickers or a silk scarf our utmost priority.

Anti-Ageing Benefits of Silk

The Cosmetic and Toiletries journal published the Swiss study nigh on a couple of decades ago which revealed the anti-aging ability of silk. Sericin is the protein in silk which can combine with the protein in skin (keratin) to create a homogeneous protective film which acts as an anti-aging barrier, retaining moisture and preventing wrinkles.

There is also evidence that the diet of silkworms contributes to silk’s health benefits as well. They feed on mulberry leaves which contain massive amounts of antioxidants (nearly 80% more than blueberries and cranberries which are known ‘super fruits’). These antioxidants help with the cellular repair that our bodies get increasingly bad at over time – hence our aging – and thus help us remain looking younger for longer.

Silk Eases Symptoms of the Menopause

Hot flushes and hormonally-driven skin conditions are common symptoms of the menopause, but silk’s soothing qualities can help with both of these ailments. It’s not certain exactly why silk helps with issues like facial flushing and other complexion problems, though it is likely due to its ability to be cool during the hot summer and yet warm during the winter.

Wear Silk Scarves for their Health Benefits

The health benefits of silk can be utilised in a number of ways, especially with the likes of pillow cases and knickers, but you can also benefit from silk by wearing a scarf made from the material. A silk scarf will also last much longer than underwear or pillow cases, plus you will be able to carry its anti-aging properties around with you wherever you go. Even during the hotter months of the year, silk is the ideal material for a scarf. It stays cool to help your skin remain cool, but will still keep you warm once the colder weather kicks in.

With such a great variety of inexpensive silk scarves to choose from, including patterned Pashminas and even coloured silk Hijabs, there’s never been more beneficial reasons to stock up on a selection of silk fashion scarves to ensure you always have the perfect accessory that not only looks amazing, but will provide you with an array of important health benefits as well.

Use a Scarf To Give More Elegance To Your Bag

There are two things to consider regarding using a long scarf and bag together. One is, do they match each other? And secondly how do I fix a scarf around,onto, or over the bag to give it extra appeal. Assuming that you don’t just want to tie it on for convenience, because it has got too warm to wear, and your bag is too full. We are considering that attaching the two together, is actually a fashion statement.

Ways To Convert Your Bag With a Scarf

When matching an outfit and accessories, it is common to link up shoe, bag, and scarf or hat colour. They may not be exactly the same tones, but near enough to be comfortable with each other.

Studs in the shoes may be translated into spots of regular colour in the scarf design, or patterns on the bag. The rest of the outfit will tend to be tones that accentuate the accessories rather than clash or compete. Therefore if you have a strong coloured scarf and bag, the skirt and blouse or jumper may be fawn or dusty colours.

Having decided on the colour scheme you now have to attach the apparently casual but cunningly designed scarf, to the bag. This will depend on how you want to appear. You may want to be cool or even make a statement about who you are.

The easiest form is to just knot it mid-way down its length, onto the end of the handle of the bag. This will allow the scarf to hang down covering part of the bag. If you want to have the girl in a hurry look, make the scarf one that is very long, so that it trails behind your shoulder, when you are heading somewhere.

If you have time, then a neat pretty bow on the clasp may look good. But remember a tatty bow will look awful, and you will in any case have to design it so that you can still open your bag with ease. A better place for the bow, may be on the start of the handle before the area where you would hold it.

You can make a custom clutch, rather than use a bigger bag, and decorate it by entwining a small silk scarf around the handle or hanging from the corner. But don’t make it too big, so that it dwarfs the clutch, or makes it difficult to carry.

There seems to be a trend at the moment to completely encase your bag in a scarf,so that it more or less disappears, apart from the odd glimpse of the handle area. I think the idea is to give the appearance that you are carrying a casual scarf type bag knotted at the corners.

The inner bag gives the security of knowing that all its contents are not going to fall out from the corners of the scarf. The other good thing about this style is that you can change the colour scheme much more cheaply, than having to buy a new bag each time. There are some who have the skill to do away with the bag completely and fold and knot the scarf to take its place as a carry-all.
